The Biggest Announcements from the August 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase
Discover what a number of partners are bringing to the Nintendo Switch with our recap of the August 2020 Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase.
KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory
Set to release later this year, players will dive into a musical experience with Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory.
Modes include Memory Drive (which involves matching past scenes from memory) and Boss Battle (which has players squaring off against bosses). Those that clear each of these stages will unlock cinematics and musical scores. Local and online multiplayer battle modes have both been included, along with the Free-for-all mode that supports local multiplayer for up to eight players.
The game will come out on November 13, 2020.
World of Tank Blitz
The latest in the free-to-play online multiplayer series, Wargaming’s World of Tanks Blitz has players piloting more than 350 historically accurate vehicles. Each of these vehicles are based on blueprints of famous engineers, but those looking for something a bit out of the ordinary can wield armored monsters from popular alternative universes.
The game is now available for free starting today.

The combo of Tetris and Puyo Puyo returns with SEGA’s Puyo Puyo Tetris 2.
